This Week’s Success Story: Parental Sponsorship Application Approved Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding
We worked on and recently had a successful conclusion of a parental sponsorship application that had taken nearly 10 years. The matter was under review for medical admissibility for renal failure – End Stage Renal Disease. Following careful medical evidence review, medical research and consultation with professionals, we discovered that the information relied by the Department in concluding that the Applicant would cause an excessive demand in Canada was incorrect. We submitted the correct information, carefully set out the need for dialysis or a transplant to be remote given the Applicant’s particular circumstances, and applied the Kidney Failure Risk equation. Following all of this, the application was approved, and we are pleased to inform that the family will be reunited in Canada after waiting nearly a decade.
